This week has been crazy! I’m not really sure where to begin…. maybe the bad stuff?
The homework I’ve had in the last week has been ridiculous. There were a few nights where I had two or three assignments from the same teacher at one time (all three due the next day). Some of these were simple assignments, others, not so much. The result? Lack of sleep. I have been up past midnight every night this week: DOING HOMEWORK. I seriously haven’t had any time to get on the computer, read or write. I’m usually in bed by one AM, but that wasn’t the case on Wednesday night. I finished my homework at five in the morning. Less than an hour and a half hour later, time for school. I nearly crashed yesterday when all of my lack of sleep really hit me. I was feeling incredibly nauseous and had the worst headache in history. Needless to say, I took advantage of the fact that it was Friday and slept well last night.
Ah, so where does the good stuff come in? I got my second paycheck for the job I had over the summer. This morning, I used some of the money I saved and finally got myself a new laptop! It’s nothing too fancy, but should do well for word processing (aka book writing and…. ugh, homework).
I foresee this week being a lot like this last one. Not good. BUT, there are some exciting things to look forward to! Catching Fire (Hunger Games Book 2) will be out Tuesday. I’m going to do my best and try to finish it before the weekend comes (we’ll see how that goes, Mr. Gives-Homework-A-Lot). There are some really cool things coming this week for the blog as well. Don’t forget that I’ll be reviewing Kaleb Nation’s debut novel, Bran Hambric: The Farfield Curse – that is this Saturday, the 5th. The following day, Kaleb will be answering a few questions, so be sure to check back on the 6th.
If you’re a young author then you will definitely want to check out Kaleb’s book, as he was a teenager when he wrote it.
Oh yes, and have you checked out the Portfolio yet? I’ve got a new short story: Fairy Hunting, posted there. It was received well by the people who ‘beta-read’ it.
Anyway, all I have left to say is: Gnomes and Mockingjays. 😉
